A note from the SD Nursing Program Specialist:

IV therapy is part of the basic role of the LPN.  The expanded role was repealed in 2000.  Since 2001, LPN nursing education programs have offered IV therapy as part of the curriculum.  Those who have not had IV therapy can be taught through in-service.  We have a module on our site within the "Nursing Education Programs' link.  Go to our website at and click on the 'site index' tab.  Click on Nurse Practice Act.  Search for the chapter "The Practice of Nursing"  ARSD 20:48:04 for the role of the RN and LPN.  The scope of practice for LPNs including IV therapy is in this chapter and the standards are ARSD 20:48:04:06 and 7.
